Police in New York are searching for a man who they say tried to snatch a 1-year-old boy from a stroller.
Nassau County police told local media a 24-year-old woman was pushing her son in a stroller Tuesday evening in Long Island when the suspect jumped in front of the stroller and grabbed the boy. He struggled with the woman, then threw the child to the pavement and fled on foot.
The boy suffered scrapes to his face and a large contusion on his forehead. He was treated at a local hospital.
The suspect is described as a black man in his early 30s with a thin build, KABC-TV reported. He was wearing a black Nike baseball cap with white lettering and a brown winter jacket.
The case remains under investigation.
